    Brahmatal Lake, according to Hindu legend, is where Lord Brahma pondered many years ago. It is located deep into the Uttarakhand Himalayas. The walk to Brahamatal Lake is an adventurous excursion across never-ending ridge lines, high altitude lakes, dense bugyal, snow-covered hills, and breathtaking views. Many treks are not available in January and February. That route to Brahmatal is a famous winter hike at that time of year. The journey is noted for having a lot of snow, which makes the route fascinating. The views from the summit are even more captivating, with majestic views of the mighty Himalayan ranges that provide many such exciting and adventurous trekking trails, but this is probably the only trekking trail in the country where you could get a front-seat view of Himalayan peaks with Mt. Trishul and Nanda Ghunti, a bird's eye view of the majestic Roopkund Lake, and ample opportunities to capture the majestic snow-covered peak that rises above Brahmatal Trek is one of the greatest Himalayan winter hikes.

    Best Time to Visit: Brahmatal Trek is best for all the year to visit. Best seasons include December to March, Expect hiking on the snow in the mid of December. During winters, Brahmatal covered in the thick blanket of snow ideal for skiers. Best time to experience Brahmatal Trek in summer includes April to June.

    • Day 2 Lohajung (7,600 ft.) to Bekaltal (9,689 ft.)

Just beside Lohajung follow the ascending human-made stone trek. Along the way, you would encounter some startling views of the Nanda Ghunti Peak. The walk is mostly inside the jungle of the conifer, Cedar, Oak and Fir. Spot the Kali valley as you climb higher and it is marked by the union of Kali and Pindari rivers. Amidst thick oak forests, the lake gleams peacefully in summer, while in winter, it is frozen and the trail would be pretty matte. Stay at Bekaltal will be organized in tents.

     

    • Day 3 Bekaltal (9,689 ft.) to Brahmatal Lake (10,440 ft.)

    Today is the day to trek to Brahmatal Lake where Lord Brahma meditated many years ago. It takes about 5-6 hours to reach Brahmatal from Bekaltal Campsite. The trail starts steeply into the Oak and Rhododendron forest which leads to the meadow of Telandi top. In the winter, you will see the meadow of Telandi turns into a vast snowfield and crossing the area, a gala of thrill. From here, it is a very gradual descent to Brahmatal.
